A double helping of Flying Lotus
The man behind the Californian Brainfeeder label and an essential benchmark in modern hip-hop and electronica, Flying Lotus will be presenting two shows at Sónar by Day: one heading the Brainfeeder showcase and another as part of the line-up on the SonarDôme stage curated by Red Bull Music Academy.
The Canadians Trust have achived critical and public acclaim with their dark and captivating pop, while Russia's Nina Kraviz is one of the new stars of European electronica, thanks to a superb debut album. The American Star Slinger, meanwhile, is beginning to set tongues wagging in increasingly wider circles with his original sessions and mixtapes covering house, hip-hop and electronic syncopation.

Sónar by Night also features the English duo Simian Mobile Disco, presenting their new album, "Unpatterns", heading up the showcase from BBC Radio 1, which will be rounded off by the British beatmaker Jack Beats, the duo of French DJs Brodinski Vs Gesaffelstein and the host Annie Mac on the decks.
In addition to Flying Lotus and Nina Kraviz, the line-up on the SonarDôme stage curated by Red Bull Music Academy is now completely defined with the incorporation of two new artists: the Italian psychedelic disco-house trio Esperanza and the unclassifiable duo of Swiss producers Radiorifle.
